Can anyone help me trace my ancestors in Germany (Baden). My Great Grandfather was Albrecht (Albert) NIEBERGALL b: 1865 in Baden Baden. He immigrated to the USA (NY or NJ?)in 1881 or 1882. In 1888 he married Frances M. Motzel of Elizabeth New Jersey. Together they had 5 children who survived.
The RETZER's also came to America approximately the same time, they all ended up in Walla Walla, Washington by the late 1880. Some key names are as follows:
--Albrecht (Albert) NIEBERGALL b:1865 Baden Baden. Albrecht had two brothers (John & Chris NIEBERGALL
--Frances Motzel (1870-1944)
--George Conrad RETZER 1830-1909 & married Carolina NIEBERGALL (1836-1861. This couple had 8-11 children many who were born in Waldangelloch, Germany or Walla Walla.
-- Henry Retzer (1852-1917)
--George (Wilhelm) Fredrick Retzer (1863-1947) married Anna GAESSNER b:1859 in Hessen Germany
--Conrad Retzer (1866-1927)
--Carrie Retzer (1868 - ?
-- Charles Retzer (1871-?) married Matilda SHELLBER & later Stella M. HAWLEY
The dates may be a bit off due to sources, however the NIEBERGALL's and RETZERS came from Waldengelloch Germany. Any help in identifying, correcting or enhancing my partial information above would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks Tom -- firstname.lastname@example.org
